Monday Minutia- Volume 1

Because not everything  that needs to be said takes 800 words.

I was…

One of our many inherited pieces is our bookcase. This is one of our newer pieces, and although I loved it when it was in my parents home, I didn’t so love it in ours. Shelving is somewhat of a necessity, as it adds storage space to a room that has no closets. And as I prefer my “junk” to be hidden from the public eye, a bookcase is not the optimal solution, but it was free, and I never look a gift horse in the mouth! (but please do not gift me a horse!)  As can be seen by…
